FIFTY BEES III: Bumblebee Talk & Safari

Come and listen to Daisy Headley from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust who will be presenting on the ‘Plight of the Bumblebee’.

Bumblebees are endearing and familiar insects. Their animated behaviour and deep buzz as they fly from flower to flower makes them a delight to watch and hear. However these insects have sharply declined in recent years with two species becoming extinct. Our food security, health, wellbeing and the economic health of our country relies on maintaining healthy ecosystems like pollination.

Doom-and-gloom predictions of extinctions of species tend to paralyse us, rather than jolting us into action. So what can be done? And why should we worry about these species going extinct?

The talk will be followed by a bumblebee ‘safari’ where Daisy will lead people outside to search for guided walk. We will catch and look at the different bumblebee species up close, learning how to identify each species. This safari will last about 60 minutes*.

This event is suitable for adults and older children.

Booking essential. Click here to go to the main event page and to book your tickets.

*The safari may be cancelled or delayed in the event of rain at the scheduled start time.
